World Series Champion Geoff Blum is the TV color analyst for the Houston Astros. Blum spent 14 seasons in the Major Leagues as an infielder from 1999 to 2012, playing for six MLB franchises including the Houston Astros, Chicago White Sox, San Diego Padres, Tampa Bay Devil Rays, Montreal Expos, and the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Before becoming a professional baseball player, Blum majored in sociology at the University of California, Berkeley and played for the California Golden Bears baseball team. In 1992, his freshman year, he played in the College World Series. In 1994, he was drafted in the 7th round of the MLB draft by the Montreal Expos.

A switch-hitter, Blum was known as one of the top pinch hitters and utility players in the game, appearing at all four infield positions for nine straight seasons. He appeared in the postseason on three occasions (2005-2006, 2011). In 2005, Blum hit a go-ahead solo home run in the 14th inning in Game 3 of the World Series to become the 30th player to homer in his first World Series at-bat.

Blum made the transition from the playing field to the broadcast booth in 2013. Since then, he has served as the primary game analyst on AT&T SportsNet Astros telecasts and has called select games for NBC Sports since the 2022 season. He also hosts a podcast called Bleacher Blums.

Blum resides in Houston, Texas.
